So Where's the Tobacco?
When I looked at the article, I saw no mention of tobacco at all. You might claim she was indirectly supporting The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition, a tobacco front group. On the other hand, that looks like an attempt by tobacco people to surround themselves with real but untrendy science the same way that Hezbollah surrounds its bases with apolitical Lebanese.
The good news is that the Sound Science Award (formerly given by The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition) is now given by an anti-tobacco group.
